Needs-no-meat Pizza on Flatbread
1 cup chopped mushrooms
1 med onion chopped
1/2 cup chopped brocolli
Penzeys Tuscan Sunset Seasoning
Penzeys Pizza Seasoning
(I always buy Penzeys seasonings and spices because they are fresh...it makes a big difference)
Pinch of salt
Saute the veggies and seasonings in olive oil.
I always have freeze dehydrated foods on hand. We live in Alaska in the middle of no where and we can run out of things from time to time. I am normally only cooking for 2-3 people and I hate wasting food. A few years ago a friend suggested I buy freeze dehydrated foods from a company named Thrive. I have loved it and it has saved my meals on more than one occasion.
That brings me to my sauce. I use the freeze dehydrated to make my sauce and I can tailor it to fit the size of meal I am preparing.
Sauce--jar sauce is fine too
2 tablespoons tomato powder
1 teaspoon bell pepper
1 teaspoon onion
salt to taste
I add the amount of water it calls for.

Today, the ground shook. Literally. We have had a couple earthquakes lately. Today felt really close. The dogs and I were being lazy and all the sudden things started to shake and the hall doors popped open and Nutmeg took off running (I don't know where she was headed but she was out of there). Luckily it did not last long and nothing was broken. My cute flowers stayed in place and no harm or accident came upon them....the family was alright too.
What does your spring look like?

The dough might seem to be wrong because it is not really doughy. I worry every time I bake them but they always turn out wonderful.
1 1/2 cups creamy or chunky peanut butter
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup coconut sugar (you can use white sugar)
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 1/2 cups quick cooking oats
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup M&M's plain chocolate candies
1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
Line or spray a cookie sheet.
I use liners.
2. In a large bowl, combine the peanut butter with the sugars and butter and mix.
Mix in the eggs and vanilla.
Mix in the oats and baking soda.
Then stir in the chips and M&M's.
3. Drop the cookies by heaping spoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.
I use a large cookie scoop or an ice cream scoop.
4. Bake 12 to 15 minutes
